Here is my layout for it.
Here is how I solved the case.
Scheme - the colours are there.
Evidence - Ribbons, pearls, birds, glitter, texture paste (on the chipboard - snow), silver accents, snowflake, flower.
Testimony - Winter Holiday, IW - soft and sparkle.
My Journalling (on the back) says:
For as long as I can remember I have wanted a white Christmas and I got one a couple of years ago but it came at a price and one I am not sure I would pay again. It was the first Christmas that we were not altogether as a family. Clint could not get away in December because of work. I wanted to go and Simon was going to make it happen. Stormie was on school holiday so she came too and I left my boy behind. He said he would be fine and arranged to go to his cousins for the day and so it came to be.
We spent a week in England, collected my brother and took the ferry from Bristol to Ireland where we spent Christmas with my youngest brother and his family, and we had very little snow there just light flurries, but another story altogether when we arrived in Scotland for Hogmanay.
We stayed at a beautiful B & B called Dunmurray Lodge in a very small village called Pitlochry. It was absolutely the winter wonderland that I had dreamed of. Covered in a couple of feet of snow... it was absolutely the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. All I wanted to do was to play in the snow, throw snow balls, makes snow angels and take loads of photos. There is nothing quite like waking up in the morning and looking outside to see the whole place covered with freshly fallen, crisp white snow, glinting in the sunlight, icicles hanging from the rooves. It was just breathtaking. I loved it it was everything I dreamed of and more, even the cold didn’t get me down and we are so not prepared for that shock. It was the coldest winter they had had for years and years it was -21 degrees. I think the coldest we ever experience here is about 8 degrees...that was a shocker.
I would love nothing more than that experience again but with my whole family.
Here are some close-ups.
I used gelatos to create the runs of paint on the page. The owl was coloured using distress pens. Then diamond glazed
There is more paint at the bottom and the snowflake is tucked among the flowers..
The title is tipped with gesso to replicate the snow. The rest of the title is rub-ons.
I loved the colours of this case file and yellow is not a go to colour for me... but there you go.
I also have my DT card for Black with 2 another challenge that you will find HERE.
Here is the December Colour Board.
Don't know about the colour board but I know sure as hell I could rock those shoes :)
Here is my card.
I used a wax crayon resist technique that I found at Anna-Karin's Blog.
So first of all I took white watercolour paper and put it through my holly cuttlebug folder to emboss it, I then went over the raised bits of leaves and stems with a white wax crayon and over the berries with a red crayon. I then swiped the whole piece of card with a Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Peacock. Once I was done I wiped it over with a wet wipe to reveal the white... I shaded the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink. Added some drywall tape and mounted it onto red and the a black card. The Merry Christmas is a rub-on. The flower is a new Pointsettia die that I got and I love it.
Thanks for taking a look.
